O's released they are starting Luis Ortiz and this line jumped from -186 to -270. Feel like we missed one here. The Orioles' No.18 prospect per MLB Pipeline, "Ortiz makes his season debut in place of Andrew Cashner, who was scratched due to a blister on his right middle finger. It will be Ortiz's third Major League appearance since being acquired in last summer's Jonathan Schoop deal."

Over the Monster: Red Sox 13, Orioles 2: The dinger party continues
The Red Sox have now won three in a row, but their win on Friday was certainly a bit easier than their previous two. After sort of slogging their way to victory on Wednesday and Thursday to salvage a split against the Rangers, Boston headed down to Baltimore and put a beatdown on the worst team in baseball. After hitting five homers in Thursday's win against Texas, the Sox started their series against the Orioles with a six-homer game on Friday. J.D. Martinez led the charge with a pair of dingers, and on the mound Eduardo Rodriguez gave his team seven strong innings.
Camden Chat: Orioles shellacked by Red Sox, 13-2, as Luiz Ortiz spot start goes poorly
The 2019 Orioles played their 69th game of the season on Friday night. In contrast to what the Internet likes to say whenever that number appears in the wild, it was not very nice. The Orioles got their butts beaten in by the Red Sox in a 13-2 loss. There is nothing good to say about the game.
As we sit here in the middle of June, one member of the Orioles rotation, David Hess, has an ERA of 7.20. Hess did not pitch tonight, but he is important to discussing Friday's demolition for this reason: When manager Brandon Hyde is asked about whether he might change the rotation, he says, "This is who we've got right now.
Camden Chat: Friday night Orioles game thread: vs. Red Sox, 7:05
Back at FanFest in January, a fan asked Mike Elias what kind of goals he had as far as the Orioles winning games in 2019. His response included a phrase that has stuck with me as the O's have failed their way through the season: "I don't want to place undue emphasis on something that's not strategically relevant." That's what he said.
Elias was not wrong to say that. The Orioles were never going to be good this season. Nothing he could do could change that fact. This problem has no quick solution. Even knowing that was his philosophy, there have been times where it's been almost a shock to see it in action.
The Joy of Sox: G71: Red Sox at Orioles, 7 PM
Eduardo Rodriguez / Luis Ortiz
The Red Sox activated Brian Johnson from the injured list and optioned Sam Travis to Pawtucket. ... Heath Hembree (forearm tightness) is unavailable today.
Alex Cora felt a "different vibe" in the dugout last night: "[The bullpen] did an outstanding job. ... We found a way to win today instead of finding a way to lose. ... Honestly, today, it was a different vibe in the dugout, which was good.
Camden Chat: Orioles-Red Sox series preview: Maybe the O's will win this series
The Orioles may be catching the defending World Series champs at just the right time. Coming into this weekend at Camden Yards, the Red Sox have lost six of their last eight games and boast an ever-expanding injured list.
Among the wounded are pitchers Nathan Eovaldi, Brian Johnson, Tyler Thornburg and Hector Velazquez, first basemen Mitch Moreland and Steve Pearce and second basemen Dustin Pedroia and Tzu-Wei Lin.
June has been a rough month for a few of the Boston bats.
Baltimore Sun: Andrew Cashner's blister leaves Orioles with unknown starter for series opener vs. Red Sox
With a blister on Andrew Cashner's right middle finger eventually forcing the Orioles to postpone his next start, manager Brandon Hyde mulled alternatives for Friday's series opener against the Boston Red Sox.
Right-hander Dylan Bundy got consideration, as he would've been able to make the start on regular rest, but an extended bullpen session Wednesday prompted the Orioles leave him as Saturday's scheduled starter.
"Didn't wanna rush him back," Hyde said.
Hyde's next choice was a bullpen game, but Thursday's 12-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays saw three Orioles relievers surrender nine runs over four innings.
Fansided: Red Sox looking to activate lefty Brian Johnson for Baltimore series
The Red Sox are getting ready to finish off their latest homestand tonight with the final game of a set with the Rangers. But that's tonight, tomorrow starts a brand new road trip and Boston will find themselves heading to Baltimore. Ahead of the series with the Orioles the Sox are looking to beef up their starting rotation by activating Brian Johnson from the IL.
Boston had a rough go of it with their starting rotation between poor outings and injuries. The Sox have essentially had a rotating door starter as they have been using anyone they can to fill the void left by the injured Nathan Eovaldi.
